Lotus Energy Cooperative has won a contract to build in Ethiopia a complex combining solar, battery storage and waste-to-energy capacity.

With at least 500 MW of solar parks, the complex in the Tigray region will power operations of Ethiopian conglomerate EFFORT Group under a 30-year deal.

Construction could start as early as September, according to the Australian community-owned clean energy firm’s CEO Anthony Vippond told the Australian Financial Review (AFR).

The AFR cited Vippond as saying that this project would create the largest microgrid globally.
